Family Holidays in Croatia

With its dazzlingly translucent waters and pretty white pebble beaches, Croatia offers the perfect conditions for an unforgettable family holiday. The country's beauty is in no way inferior to holiday hot spots like Portugal or Spain and - besides its divine beaches - boasts a wealth of fascinating culture, architecture and history. The child-friendly atmosphere will make you and your family feel right at home and you'll find there's plenty to do and discover for toddlers and teens alike. 

Travelling with kids of any age can be a bit of a challenge sometimes. You need to think of what feels like a million things to pack for the little ones and choosing accommodation that caters to families' needs is not always easy either. It's a good thing that at Sovereign, we take this job out of your hands so that you can lie back and look forward to arriving at a hotel that is tailor made for guests who travel with children.

The Dubrovnik Riviera is ideal for family holidays

Start in the southern city of Dubrovnik with its stunning Riviera and mesmerising architecture. The town combines a Mediterranean flair with Slavic influences and the UNESCO-listed, car-free Old Town is embraced by the centuries-old Walls of Dubrovnik. Venture up those walls and you'll be presented with the most beautiful views across the townscape.

Check out the Sun Gardens Dubrovnik, our top recommendation for a family-friendly stay. The hotel lies about 11 kilometres from the city and features stylish, contemporary rooms with the dedicated Marco Polo Kids' Club to keep your little ones busy for hours. Take the kids out for a day to Lokrum Island, which is just a stone's throw away from Dubrovnik Old Town. You'll find it less crowded than Dubrovnik's beaches and there are exciting rock coves and botanical gardens for the kids to explore as well. 

Sovereign Recommends

Sun Gardens Dubrovnik

Watch the children run and play through the grounds before hopping in the pool to splash about. Or head to the beach for some fun in the sea. There is also a Marco Polo Kids' Club that will keep the children entertained all day. There is also a kid's sports academy so the little ones are entertained, while parents can relax in the Spa and Wellness area.
